    Good for getting your foot in the door, then get out.

    I worked at Bemis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good. Parking is good. Lots of places to go if you need to get away for lunch (if you are allowed).

    Cons

    No advancement for someone who isn't related to someone already in an advanced position or if you don't have a mechanical engineering degree. HR is a joke. If you have any issues they will not be handled appropriately or quietly. Management is slow to praise but very quick to pass the buck as well as the blame. Many managers can't manage and instead of being let go or demoted they are promoted or moved to manage a different angle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step out of your comfort zone and let go those you know can't manage. Embrace those who are true leaders and have great knowledge. Respect those below you and respond to their innovation, as you claim the company is based on innovation. Remember your hourly employees sacrifice a lot with the swing shifts they work.

    I have been working at Bemis

    Pros

    Its a pay check and has decent benefits. But they will never hire another full time employee only season help and temp workers.

    Cons

    Constant policy changes designed to write up and fire as many hourly employees as possible.
    Constant harassment from management.
    Now matter what you do or how good you do it it is never enough.
    Unequal treatment between employees.
    They hire people to run departments that have no clue about the production process for the department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit changing policies every week. When your employees tell there is a problem listen. Employee morale is important and right now it cant get much lower. Learn to cooperate with the bargaining unit. They are not your enemy but are there to help.

    Pros

    Friendly environment. Possible to work there and have a balance between life and work.

    Cons

    Not enough career opportunities for women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clearer direction on skill sets needed for future advancement opportunities. Do more training for leadership on management skills.
